Active in local events and staffed by passionate runners, the community-focused shop strikes a chord with locals, visitors, athletes, and casual walkers alike. Best of all, they keep a calendar of all local running events and even hold their own training sessions. If you're traveling solo and want some running buddies, every Thursday at 7pm they host a run (beginning and ending at the store). For a more intensive session, join them at the Sawyer Camp Trail in San Mateo Saturdays at 9am (a 12-mile track but most run 3-8 miles). Get fitted for the perfect shoes and test them out.
